I'm a member of the Nisky Co-oop. Due to it's poor location (well, maybe not for Niskayuna), a lot of Schenectady is excluded so there just may be enough to support another.
That said, this is the first time I've heard of another Co-op under consideration. I'm not the arbiter of good PR but...

Lots of great descriptive text here DG, but there's also some great photography of the old bridges. It's a shame those weren't included too.

How would Jesus have handled OCD?

And I stand gladly corrected, wmarincic, although the pertinent part of the Buckley Amendment can be found under "Records of Disciplinary Actions". Let that be a response to Mr. Etkkin as well, if he reads this.
Also let the record also show you cited EPIC, a well-know liberal website, no doubt run by dirty, pot-smoking hippies. Just saying...

Thanks for that tonijean. I too watched a dear friend be bullied to death in high school. For me, I was like a deer in headlights as I watched him fall into a kind of psychosis in the days leading up his final act, driven, I have no doubt, by weeks of relentless bullying. And I watched, like a deer in headlights, as others brutally bullied him, not having a clue what to do since they were part of the "clique" I belonged to. His decline was so pronounced that our coach actually pulled us all aside after practice (which 'John' hadn't attended) to discuss it and assure us he was getting help, not knowing what was actually happening.
So maybe, as I believe I heard Robin say, social media providing a kind of anonymity and awareness, might save some lives. I hope so. I'd like to think that if I'd had the awareness of what was actually happening back then and the avenue to report it anonymously, I would have also had the conscience to.

Ok, pnotto, Phils2008, whatever. You both seems to come from the same mold.

Hoo boy, it is NOT illegal for "the school to speak of whatever if any punishment they received". Cite the specific law please to prove me wrong.
And you clearly don't see the hypocrisy in blocking another from exercising their first amendment rights. Whatever you may think of the church people (I happen to think their "expression" falls into the realm of mental illness), you may think your blocking of them falls under your first amendment rights, but your first amendment rights don't allow you to block another's. That's a kind of censorship, and that's unAmerican.

Atheists have just as much "belief" as you do wmarancic, it's just different.
And no atheist wants to ban the things you believe in, ok? Really!
What you see as "banishment" is non-Christians looking for equity in this great melting pot called America. Christianity is a dominant religion in America but that doesn't make America a Christian country, please let's not hear about how they're oppressed.

For all your sermonizing, it remains that 89% of registered Republicans are white, pnotto. You still haven't addressed that.

Ah, and so much better than the wreck that used to stand there:
Again, well done Niskayuna! It's a perfect match.
